Patata Bravas

Hola Amigos!

Patata bravas is a traditional tapas recipe. Each household has their own recipe and finds them the best. kids sure will love this recipe needless to say about adults. Tapas means a variety of appetizers or snacks in the Spanish cuisine. It is usually served to encourage conversation among people who otherwise will be busy eating a whole meal. We had Tapas for the first time in Solea Restaurant, MA, USA. You can find the review of the restaurant in our other blog. Just click here.


  • 3 bsp of olive oil
  • 4 large Russet potatoes, peeled, and cut into wedges
  • 2 tbsp minced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Spanish paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Tabasco Sauce
  • 1/4 tsp ground thyme
  • 1/2 cup (4 fl. oz) Ketchup
  • 1/2 cup (4 fl. oz_) mayo
  • Chopped parsley, to garnish
  • 1 cup (8 fl. oz) olive oil, for frying


Brava sauce:

In a saucepan, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute until the onion is soft. Turn off the heat, and add the paprika, Tabasco sauce, and thyme, stirring well. Transfer to a bowl and add the ketchup and mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.


Boil the potatoes. Sprinkle the potatoes lightly with salt and black pepper. In a large skillet fry the potatoes in 1 cup (8 fl. oz) olive oil until cooked through and golden-brown, stirring occasionally. Drain the potatoes on paper towels, check the seasoning, add more salt if necessary, and set it aside.

Mix the potatoes with sauce before serving. Garnish with parsley and serve hot.

Hope you will enjoy this recipe too like we did.
